The most interesting information that did not pass as an important public school topic in my school time is the absolutely inferior importance of Europe other than just in recent time, 1800s and on. The Olmec, Mayan, Aztec, Inka societies were far larger and more prosperous in its prime than Europe, so was Asia - when it was still untouched by the Europeans.
"If we don't halt population growth with justice and compassion, it will be done for us by nature, brutally and without pity - and will leave a ravaged world."
Nobel Laureate Dr. Henry W. Kendall
Woody Allen on Population.
1979 .. Overpopulation will exacerbate problems to the breaking point. Figures tell us there are already more people on earth than we need to move even the heaviest piano. If we do not call a halt to breeding, by the year 2000 there will be no room to serve dinner unless one is willing to set the table on the heads of strangers. Then they must not move for an hour while we eat. Of course energy will be in short supply and each car owner will be allowed only enough gasoline to back up a few inches.
